Door Stop Monster



Cheap crafts don't have to look, well, cheap! Make a fun and whimsical Door Stop Monster from Hand Make My Day - it's a great way to get a conversation going and spook your guests. Use a microfiber mitt to create the monster and add embellishments to bring it to life.

Door Stop Monster


  • Microfiber mitt
  • Food container with lid. It should be just about the size of your mitt.
  • Rocks or sand. Found in the crafts section or decor section.
  • Ping pong balls
  • Permanent marker. I used Bic fine tip black.
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Hot Glue and hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Plastic bag (the one time you’ll actually want to leave the reusable bag at home)


  1. Snip two holes at the top of the mitt and insert your pipe cleaner antenna.

  2. Cut elastic band away from mitt.
  3. Hot glue elastic to bottom of plastic container.
  4. Stuff plastic bag at the top of the mitt.
  5. Fill container with rocks or sand and close tightly (using glue if it seems it’s going to pop off).

  6. Stretch mitt over the container stopping where the mitt slightly overlaps the elastic and the plastic filled head seems full. Glue in place.

  7. Use permanent markers on ping pong balls to make eyeballs.

  8. Hot glue ping pong balls to monster.


  1. You may not need to cut off elastic or if you do you may not need to glue it to the container. Pick a container that looks around the same size and shape of the mitt. If you are not afraid of a needle and thread you could alternatively just fill up the mitt with rocks and sew it shut. Your monster will slouch a bit more without the rigidness of the food container but a frumpy monster could be cute too! Buttons would be a really fun addition to this little guy in place of his bulging ping pong ball eyes.
